If you have had a test carried out it is important that you contact the surgery to check if any action is required following the test. Please remember to telephone AFTER 11.00 am. All results are seen by the doctor who ordered the test and they will attach a message for reception staff to pass to the patient. If the doctor wants to see you to explain the result, we will offer you an appointment.
The results for the majority of blood and urine tests are normally available within 3 days. More complicated tests, and some that are sent away to specialist laboratories, may take longer. X-ray results usually take around 10 days.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
